Dubai Chronicles: Deira in The Greens
Distance brings a certain clarity to one’s own perspective. It illuminates a person’s interpretation of events, languages, culture and experiences. Living away from Dubai for the longest time in 5 years, I have come to remember people, things and activities in a different light.
We had a prayer group in both parts of the city, Deira and Bar Dubai sides. After prayer we also take time to visit places. This is the Greens in Al Barsha where I have a French friend who lives there.
The place is part of the progessive part of Dubai, places where it used to be dessert. We had fun at the pool and some sharing of our experiences. I am glad to be part of this team.
And what would dinner be with the French without cheese and wine? Fellowship and time together helps us to see our part in God’s plan and eventually play a big role in the His whole purpose.
Most of us are now in different places around the world. But the experiences and the learning we had during those times we will bring with us.
